Sometimes You Just Need An Arcade Game

For some of us, playing video games is a hobby. You sit down and immerse yourself into a story about this amazing new world, and inside of this great new adventure, and of course about an amazing hero or heroes. There is so much detail that goes into the stories of video games and most of us don't even notice. Years ago they didn't have detailed stories about the video games they made. Arcade games lacked stories, but they did not lack entertainment.

Some games like Space Invaders, Asteroids, Pong, etc did not have stories written down, the stories were in the titles. Space Invaders was a game about aliens from space invading the world, and you were a lone ship who's mission was to stop the invaders from landing and taking over the world! Asteroids was just a game that involved you defending yourself from large masses in space... SHOOT!! PEW PEW!! The list goes on.

The great thing about these video games though was the fact that you did not have to know any story with them. You paid your money and took your chances at getting the high score. That was another great thing about arcade games, high scores. Games could just go on forever making your quarter, to you, worth a whole lot more than what it seemed. The game just kept getting harder and harder until you messed up or until you just could not handle the speed. Some of the arcade games were made by mistake and were never meant for the public.

Ninja Gaiden Sigma Plus - Review of the Playstation Vita Video Game

This is a weird review to tackle, because by now this game has been around for eight long years and been re-released numerous times. The obvious thing to do would be to just focus on the Vita specific features of this latest packaging, but that's pretty boring. I've never personally reviewed Ninja Gaiden, so I'm going to give this a solid review that will hopefully appeal to Vita owners who have (somehow) never actually played this game.

So let's start with a bold statement: I think (the original) Ninja Gaiden deserves the title as one of the best action-adventure games to ever grace a console. It's not perfect, and time has caused its flaws to be magnified, but the combat system is as tight as ever. Every sword fight is fast and intense, and every battle you participate in could be your last. You absolutely must master (at the very least) the basic techniques, since as you have probably heard, this game is notoriously difficult.

And it is difficult, especially by modern standards, but Ninja Gaiden's difficulty is discussed much like Demon/Dark Souls' difficulty: as an exercise in hyperbole. Like those games, Ninja Gaiden is significantly challenging, but with patience and experience the game can be bested. A quick tip: learn how to block and dodge. These combat techniques are non-negotiable.
